Art & Design Technology
Art and Design Technology are taught in all our year groups in a variety of exciting and interesting ways.
Older children enjoy learning Art and Design Technology in a designated studio with their class teacher, which allows them to work on larger projects and have more space for their creativity. Younger children usually use their own classrooms.
The children are encouraged to work independently and collaboratively. They regularly have the use of the many different materials, media and equipment that are available. We also research subjects, by the use of the Internet and can print out valuable information from the school’s computer facilities. In addition, classes can use our 3D printer to further extend their learning.
Children are selected to enter into national and local competitions and the school has won a number of prizes. We also run school wide competitions each term in which all pupils are encouraged to participate in.
We also have some creative clubs at West Lodge that have produced artwork that can be seen all around our school. Children are regularly encouraged to work creatively and they have brightened up our corridors with interesting and varied projects. Both Art and Design and Technology lessons produce fantastic pieces of work to a very high standard.
